Analysis of the action of alpha-terpineol-enriched gel associated with pulsed ultrasound on acute tendonitis in Wistar rats
AbstractThe objective of the present study was to analyze the action of α-terpineol-enriched gel associated with therapeutic ultrasound on the inflammatory process. Tendonitis was induced by transverse compression during 10s with Halstead tweezers on the second rack, as well as ten scarifications, using 72 Rattus norvegicus, Wistar variety rats, divided into four groups: A: Negative Control, B: Alpha-Terpineol-Enriched Gel (Topical Use), C: Alpha-Terpineol-Enriched Gel + Pulsed Ultrasound and D: Pulsatile Ultrasound. Three treatment periods were established, 7, 14 and 21 days and the parameters evaluated in each period were edema and histological analysis. Statistical analysis was performed using the Prisma 5.0 program for one-way ANOVA and t-test analyzes, with a significance level of 5% (p <0.05). Topically applied alpha-terpineol-enriched gel accelerated the tendon repair process in rats with induced tendonitis, especially after seven days, but when associated with pulsed ultrasound, there was a greater potential for tendonitis repair.
